About the Breton Crêpes (Crêpes Bretonnes)

The Breton crêpe is a traditional dish commonly consumed in Lower Brittany. Breton Crêpes can be made from wheat (sweet crêpe) or buckwheat (salted crêpe). The second is not to be confused with the galette du blé noir (buckwheat crêpe), typical of Upper Brittany.

Traditionally, crêpes bretonnes are usually cooked on a specific device called bilig in Breton, or galetière /galettoire in Haute-Bretagne. Eventually, the dough can also be prepared in a simple crêpière or pan. Crêpes can be served plain or garnished with various ingredients, salty or sweet depending on the dough chosen. It is also traditional to eat crêpes with cider, a very typical drink of Brittany.

Years ago, when Parisians wanted to eat in a good crêperie, Montparnasse was the place to go. Indeed, Gare de Montparnasse was at the end of the 19 century the arrival station in Paris for many Bretons looking for an opportunity in the capital. Many of them settled around Montparnasse and created a real “Little Brittany”, with many traditional crêperies to eat for a few francs around Odessa street.

If you want to find a good crêperie, Montparnasse is still a good option. However, things have changed in the capital and today the best crêperies in Paris are spread out all around the city. Their owners are still proud Bretons but they are no longer satisfied with just serving up a flat pancake sprinkled with sugar in an old-school dining room full of dark wood and Breton lace. Nowadays, the best crêpes in Paris are colorful contemporary works of art almost too good to eat served in beautiful, sometimes effortlessly chic restaurants offering comfort and friendliness to their guests.
